First Level Training / Pre-deployment Training

Aims

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to evolve in alarming ways. The most effective means to contain the outbreak involves setting up Ebola Treatment Centres and isolation units, and managing them according to international standards and guidelines.

The primary purpose of the two-day Ebola: Management and Training pre-deployment course is to ensure that field workers have sufficient knowledge of how to provide care to Ebola patients and ensure their own personal safety.

The course is based on the syllabus of trainings developed by Médecins Sans Frontières and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). It is suitable for doctors, nurses and water/sanitation specialists, logisticians and other professionals working in high risk environments.
